Tikkun 70 – 95
(Continue from DZ 989)
The roots of all face, body markings and colors are in Keter, Chokmah and Binah.
Lines are the aspect of the right column, Chessed and the Lion from the holy Throne. Shapes are the aspect of left, Gevurah and Ox. Colors (not always visible) are the aspect of different energy types, the aspect of central column, Tiferet and Eagle of the Holy throne.
They become visible in the lower level that is the place of the Shechina in the image of Adam. The spiritual forces revealed below in markings on the face, hands and body are concealed forms of the light that the individual carries inside or is connected to.
“ וַהֲסִרֹתִי, אֶת-כַּפִּי, וְרָאִיתָ, אֶת-אֲחֹרָי; וּפָנַי, לֹא יֵרָאוּ ”
“And I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.’ ” The ‘back’ of the light is the aspect of concealment. The ‘face’ is revelation.
God is telling Moses that he can see his back, but not his face. As created beings, we can not see our Creator as long as we are in forms of vessels. A vessel is light that is different from its surrounding light and has a desire for a specific identity.
In this section, the Zohar explains that our hands are the aspect of the Tree of Life.
Thumb – Keter
Index Finger – Chokmah
Middle finger – Binah
Ring finger – Zeir Anpin (6 Sefirot of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod and Yessod)
Little finger (pinky) – Malchut
The actions of the hands are the aspect of the fruits of the Tree. Positive actions like Tzedakah, helping others, sharing and similar are registered in the palm of the hands.
By reading the hands we can tell if a person is doing kind actions or negative or if he is slave to his nature, doing good and bad as it happens to be on his path.
“וַיְקַו לַעֲשׂוֹת עֲנָבִים, וַיַּעַשׂ בְּאֻשִׁים”
“and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes”
The positive light drawn down doing good actions remain on the hands and bring blessing to the person. The energy of negative actions will corrupt even if they are the results of positive intentions.
Do not use your hands for any negative action and wash your hands each time you touch negative things even if they are not visibly dirty.
To draw the blessing of Tzedaka, meditate using L’shem Yichud (DZ 980 http://dailyzohar.com/?p=8068) .
Meditate that what you give is the י Yod of the name because everything comes from the Light. The hand with 5 fingers is the aspect of the letter H ה, the conscious of the giving act is the aspect of the letter ו Vav that is like a stretch of the hand. The actual giving is the aspect of the letter ה H of Malchut. With that, the light comes down and sweetens the judgments.
The connection and faith in the light is also considered as Tzedaka because it connects the light and the vessel. People that dedicate their lives like Abraham in the verse below are also considered to make the action of Tzedakah with their connection.
“וְהֶאֱמִן, בַּיהוָה; וַיַּחְשְׁבֶהָ לּוֹ, צְדָקָה”
“And he believed in the LORD; and He counted it to him for righteousness (Tzedakah).”
Rabbi Nissim Peretz זצ”ל of blessed memory explained that a coin, פרוטה, פרט has numerical value of רפח with the kolel (adding 1 for the whole). רפח is 288 that represents the world of Tikkun.
Every single action that we do with pure hands and for the sake of connecting the light and the vessel, Shechina, is Tzedaka, one coin or millions of them. Everyone should do Tzedaka on the spiritual and physical levels as much as they can to bring blessings to their hands.
